St Francis Xavier Cabrini Shrine is dedicated to Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first U.S. citizen to be canonized a Saint. Born in Italy, Mother Cabrini’s mission of caring for orphans and the indigent transported her to New York City, where she provided material and spiritual aid to thousands of impoverished Italian immigrants. In her lifetime, Mother Cabrini established 67 schools, hospitals and orphanages throughout the world. She founded the Institute of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which today continues Mother Cabrini’s legacy by serving those in need on 6 continents and in 15 countries. Mother Cabrini is the Patron Saint of Immigrants. To learn more, please visit www.cabrinishrineNYC.org.
